Home SOA : Composition contextuelle de Services dans les Réseaux d'Equipements pervasifs

Abstract : Pervasive Computing aims at filling our environment with communication devices in order to assist us in our daily activities without our explicit intervention. Indeed, in the near future, human beings will engage interactions with a number of smart devices, faded in into the environment, without being aware of their location or their precise nature and without going through complex, specific interfaces.

Addressing Pervasive Computing challenges in local networks such as device distribution, heterogeneity and dynamicity, this thesis exposes a conduct line and a software approach named Home SOA. This conduct line distinguishes the situations where protocol-based solutions are relevant and turn the other situations into Software Engineering problems. Among the protocol-based solutions, the proposition of a uniform protocol interface for software lifecycle management in the UPnP Device Management Working Committee is one of the major contributions.

The Home SOA promotes a set of object-oriented design patterns above modular software platform technologies. Beyond the object orientation, the Home SOA makes benefit of recent service component models and the service platform concept. Distribution is hidden by service-oriented drivers while network dynamicity is locally reified on the platform. Distributed objects are turned by refined drivers into interfaces semantically close to the targeted application domain. Service contextualization and service selection automation reach the objective of simplifying the development or pervasive applications. The proposed framework is implemented on the OSGi platform and is validated by the realization of context-aware applications mixing distinct application domains in the Home network.
